Good afternoon, Athletics Nation! We have everything you need to cure your case of the Mondays, so just stay here and bask in baseball's warm glow until the game starts in several hours.
Josh Nelson of South Side Sox invited me to do a podcast preview of this week's series against Chicago, and this is the result. (This won't be a regular feature, and I still have a Q&A from them, but it's a cool bonus for this series.) The episode was recorded on Saturday, but nothing has really gone out of date. The segment is just under 15 minutes.
For the full 70-minute podcast, including a chat with Jon Greenberg of ESPN Chicago, check out South Side Sox.
